This summer is rushing by. Before I know it September will arrive bringing cooler nights and a hint of wild color to the trees. I cannot keep up with this year. I feel like everything is rushing by me so quickly. The world is going fast forward and I am stuck in pause. I feel the passage of time so sharply today…Each day I am striving to just stop and really savor the moment. Watching the kids…taking a moment and really savoring it. These precious moments pass by so quickly.
Yesterday my heart was broken. The Bible Study I have been going to for four years is likely going to end. Those precious ladies have helped me through so much…I’ve grown so much as a Christian with them. I do not want to let go. I no longer attend the same church so…it isn’t likely that I will see them very often anymore. Time moves on but I will miss those moments of prayer with them. I will miss sitting in that dining room and sharing our life with Jesus together. Heaven already seems so much sweeter…
I was a good girl and did not cry…not there anyway.
One of my dear friends is also moving away and she stopped by for a visit yesterday. Truly a heartbreaking day.
However, Jesus is giving me new friends to cherish and love and that is good. They are helping to soften the pain. I like new friends to discover and grow with. One of these new friends has a swimming pool and we get to go over every week and play. My kids adore her older sons. I am looking forward to this new chapter.

Me too, sad, but as the saying goes…make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver and the other gold. We will have to plan some park playdates/picnic outings with the group. I really loved seeing you yesterday! It was a very good time with friends and time in God’s Word! Sometimes change is hard, I know 🙂 Love and blessings friend!! xo

The time of them being little does go by way too fast … Enjoy it all now!!!
I’m trying not to think about the sad part of moving. You know how long it takes for me to trust someone as my friend. I will miss you something fierce.

I’ll be praying for you to find good friends! And we can always burn up our phone minutes!

Thanks for subscribing dear sister! That’s neat that you have a drive in. The small town I grew up in had a drive in. We like to visit it when we go home. Hugs to you. I can understand the loneliness of friends moving and leaving a church etc. Lego camp looks fun. My son would love that!. God bless 🙂

We feel lucky to live near a drive-in! We thought we were going to lose it when everything went digital but they upgraded their equipment over the winter. If we have visitors over the summer months we usually take them to the drive-in. Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. I enjoy reading your blog.
